First, there was Booking.com. Then there was Airbnb. Now it’s time for this startup: A peer-to-peer marketplace for finding workspaces. You can book a workspace anywhere, even in someone’s chic living room. This company lets you turn the world into your office. The economy is changing; Hybrid work is the new status quo.
Working from home became ubiquitous during the pandemic, but it’s not a permanent solution. Homes and traditional offices lack the engagement and hospitality that workers crave, and the real estate market doesn’t offer a fitting or flexible supply. As commercial real estate transforms from a trading commodity into a consumer product, the workspace market will evolve in the same way the hotel market did. Companies will fuel this trend by seeking remote workers to increase their talent pool. These workers want more freedom and control over where and how they work, and they will need a one-stop shop like the platform of this startup to enable it.
|The company helps property owners repurpose their underutilized spaces to create new, nonconflicting income streams. The hosts pay no commission, and we simply add a 10-20% markup to each listing. This model is designed to be extremely attractive to hosts. It will help increase the supply of workspaces, driving down the prices and providing users with new, unique options. Future earnings models could include a SaaS license fee for employers and advertising fees for hosts.
